Morton Grove is considered to be a community of neighbors, friends, and family. It is home to beautiful forest preserve spaces and has a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. The community is known for its welcoming nature and is home to a mix of young professionals and retirees.

Morton Grove gained national recognition through its greenhouses and later through its stance on gun control. The village's history reaches beyond suburban Chicago to the steps of Capitol Hill. Notably, Morton Grove passed a controversial handgun ban, which attracted worldwide interest and media attention.

The area around present-day Morton Grove was first inhabited by Potawatomi Native Americans, followed by French traders. English immigrants moved into the area in the 1830s, followed by German and Luxembourgish farmers. The settlement began growing from about 100 persons, and by 1874 had grown enough to have its first postmaster. The village faced challenges during the Great Depression but experienced growth and prosperity after World War II, especially during the Baby Boom era.

The village was named after banker Levi Parsons Morton, who served as U.S. vice president under Benjamin Harrison. Mr. Morton helped finance the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad (later the Milwaukee Road). The railroad roughly tracked the North Branch of the Chicago River in the area and established a stop at the old Miller's Mill. Miller's Mill Road, now Lincoln Avenue, connected the former riverside sawmill to the township's central settlement (Niles Center, now Skokie). The railroad stop facilitated trade and development and the upstart neighborhood grew enough to incorporate in December 1895. The Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry was founded in 1926, reflecting the village's optimistic time period.

In a nutshell, Morton Grove, Illinois, is a vibrant community with a rich history, strong community values, and a welcoming atmosphere, making it an attractive place to live and visit.
